'The Playboy Club' Loses Advertisers, PTC Calls for Immediate Cancellation

Will it soon be time to bid farewell to 'The Playboy Club?' Yes, if the members of The Parents Television Council (PTC) have their way.

The PTC has been campaigning against NBC's new drama series for months, urging advertisers and NBC affiliates to drop it.

Now the PTC claims that seven advertisers have already withdrawn from 'The Playboy Club' and is calling for the series -- which the pressure group says "objectifies and degrades women" -- to be cancelled immediately.

Asking members to put pressure on the remaining sponsors of the show (Capital One, Samsung and Chrysler), PTC President Tim Winters said the group wants to know "if their corporate values are in step with those of the Playboy brand."
